Description Suggest an Edit

The Black Creek Nature Trail begins at the Davison Township Municipal Center and winds its way to the trail system in the City of Davison’s Jack Abernathy Regional Park. Travelers on the trail will enjoy the tree-lined, 1.6-mile route along the Black Creek to the 138-acre park.

The trail, which connects the township and city, is a significant part of the area’s efforts to encourage a healthy, active community. In 2011, the Davison Arch was erected where the township and city meet on the trail as a monument to this joint effort.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Black Creek Nature Trail is available in Jack Abernathy Regional Park on Frank Boyce Parkway in the City of Davison. Additional parking can be found at a trailhead where the trail meets Gale Road in Davison Township.
